Sunday would prove to be busy, too.

Boise Police were called to the Eastman parking garage on Main Street in downtown Boise at 2:19 a.m. on Feb. 22,  after two men reported a stranger had pointed a gun at them.

The victims said a man approached their vehicle and asked if they had drugs or cash. The victims told police that after they said, "No," the man pulled out a handgun and pointed it at them. The victims, who were able to drive away, told dispatch  the suspect was driving a silver pickup and was about to leave the garage, heading toward Capitol Boulevard.

Boise police officers arrived quickly and found the suspect's pickup near the garage ticket booth. They worked to clear the area around the suspect's truck of other vehicles, in case he tried to drive away. The suspect repeatedly refused to stop his vehicle completely and keep his hands in sight. Officers spotted multiple handguns in the front seat of the pickup, easily in reach of the suspect.

After repeated commands, officers were able to get the suspect out of his truck and into custody. Jessie D. Boozer-Barone, 22, of Nampa, failed field sobriety tests and blew a .117/114 into a breathalyzer. Officers found a small amount of marijuana and called paramedics to treat a scrape on Boozer-Barone's face. He was then taken to Ada County jail  and booked for two felony counts of aggravated assault, misdemeanor DUI and misdemeanor marijuana possession.
